797. Sunday up the River
MY love o'er the water bends dreaming; 
  It glideth and glideth away: 
She sees there her own beauty, gleaming 
  Through shadow and ripple and spray. 
O tell her, thou murmuring river,         5
  As past her your light wavelets roll, 
How steadfast that image for ever 
  Shines pure in pure depths of my soul.
